Why not include the content from the faculty site as an RSS feed into the
department site. Do it using the built in WordPress RSS engine cache it
(with a timeout) and render it appropriately,
If there is a query on the faculty site that will retrieve all the staff in
a specific department, added /feed to that URL or a feed=rss2 query var will
render that content as RSS which can be consumed and displayed by any of the
other sites. No trickery involved -- standard WordPress functionality.
And if you wanted to display them in a sidebar there is already a widget for
that. If you want to turn that into a short code handler take a look at the
RSS feed widget code.
